Children in the Tropics (1984). Prevention in Obstetrics. The aim of this issue of "Children in the Tropics" is to describe work that may be done by a motivated health team having only the strict minimum of material resources. While not a handbook of obstetrics, this text serves as a reminder of basic information and procedures workers must be able to perform. Following a review of the educational and psychological role of health workers, the discussion offers a description of the progression of the prenatal visit for the first, second, and third trimesters of pregnancy. Discussion then shifts to the management of a normal pregnancy and to what must be done when a risk or pathology has been discovered. Subsequent discussion focuses on the surveillance of labor, delivery, and the puerperium. In conclusion, the importance of planned parenthood is briefly discussed. Appendices provide information about nutrition and pregnancy, medication and pregnancy, medication used in obstetrics, and equipment for the consulting and delivery rooms.

Hesse, Michael B. (1975). A Coorientational Study of Wisconsin State Senators: Their Role in the Communication Process. The main objective of this constituency study was to determine the level of awareness and corresponding opinions of constituents with regard to three issues. Thirty-three Wisconsin state senators served as subjects along with 1,650 Wisconsin citizens who were interviewed via telephone regarding their views. The political public relations environment in a rural setting is one of high surveillance. Rural senators become quite accurate in their assessment of the voting public, and opinion agreement seems to become a precondition to reelection. Urban senators, on the other hand, do not display the same sensitivity to constituents. They come into office about as discrepant from the views of their constituents as are new rural senators, and they seem to stay that way. The results of this study are presented in both narrative and table format.   [More]  Descriptors: Communication (Thought Transfer), Government (Administrative Body), Higher Education, Mass Media

Fischer, Margaret (1971). A Current Look at Phenylketonuria (PKU). Research was reviewed on the current status of phenylketonuria, an hereditary amino acid metabolic disorder that can cause severe mental retardation, physical complications, and emotional difficulties if not detected and treated early in childhood. A majority of the research cited was published in the 1960's. Topics covered were: discovery of phenylketonuria; etiology; incidence; clinical syndrome; possible resulting mental retardation; frequent common physical characteristics; possible resulting neurological disorders; detection techniques through urine, blood, fluorometric, and chromotographic screening tests; considerations on dietary treatment; usual positive effects of treatment; treatment problems concerning acceptance of treatment by parents, acceptance by child himself, and regular medical surveillance; and anticipatory and corrective measures for prevention of phenylketonuria. A bibliography of about 70 documents and a listing of states having mandatory screening laws were included. Descriptors: Bibliographies, Diseases, Exceptional Child Research, Medical Evaluation

HIV/AIDS Surveillance Report (2001). HIV/AIDS Surveillance Report: U.S. HIV and AIDS Cases Reported through June 2001. Midyear Edition. This report includes new tables which present trends in estimated annual AIDS incidence from 1996-00, by U.S. region, race/ethnicity, and exposure category. Some of the tables include: persons reported to be living with HIV infection and with AIDS, by state and age group; AIDS cases and annual rates per 100,000 population, by metropolitan area and age group and by state and age group; male and female adult/adolescent AIDS annual rates and HIV infection and AIDS cases; AIDS cases by age group, exposure category, and sex; AIDS cases and HIV infection by sex, age at diagnosis, and race/ethnicity; male and female adult/adolescent AIDS cases and HIV infection cases, by exposure category and race/ethnicity; pediatric AIDS and HIV infection cases by exposure category and race/ethnicity; and deaths in persons with AIDS, by race/ethnicity, age at death, and sex. Overall, the number of estimated AIDS cases diagnosed annually declined substantially from 1996-99, though the rate of decline slowed in 1999-00. AIDS incidence increased among women and persons infected through heterosexual contact. From 1999-00, the number of estimated deaths among persons with AIDS declined 11 percent. From 1999-00, the estimated number of persons living with AIDS increased 7.9 percent.   [More]  Descriptors: Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome, Adolescents, Age Differences, Disease Incidence

Thomas, Francis H. (1968). A View of Man's Role and Function in a Complex System. In this paper the roles and functions of man in the evolution and development of two complex specific systems within the Army operational environment are discussed. It is pointed out that throughout the course of historical development, the basic system functions and objectives have remained unchanged even though the system equipments have varied. With equipment changes, man's physical functions in system operation have also changed. In predicting the effectiveness of man in a future system operational environment, an approach independent of equipment differences is required. Such an approach in which man is conceived as an information processor is described. The approach is applied to the human operator roles in manned aerial reconnaissance and surveillance and in targer acquisition.   [More]  Descriptors: Information Processing, Management Systems, Models, Operations Research

Wagner, Mary; Wagner, Marsden G. (1974). Family Day Care in Denmark. The present report describes a system for the care of children during the day in Denmark: care in private family homes. Begun in 1966, this program organized a formal system of family day care homes initiated and supervised by the government; this is an extension of the former system of licensing privately initiated family day care homes. From the Danish experience, a number of principles emerge which appear to be relevant to the United States. It is possible for the government to conduct a program of surveillance for quality control and to establish a minimal standard of care for each child. A family day care home system has the special advantages of being an important source of strength to the family, offers a rewarding career for women who prefer to work at home, and has the possibility of rapid expansion. It is suggested that because of children's needs and parental preferences more than one type of day care service should be offered.   [More]  Descriptors: Administrative Organization, Child Caregivers, Comparative Analysis, Day Care

Condelli, Larry; Shaw, Jerry I. (1981). Effects of Compliance Outcome and Basis of Power on the Powerholder-Target Relationship. A powerholder may influence a target individual on the basis of reward, coercive, legitimate, referent, expert, or informational power. To determine the effects of compliance outcome and basis of power on the powerholder-target relationship, 108 undergraduates read six scenarios in which a powerholder influenced a target. An expected interaction between type of outcome and power base was not found, although main effects were found for each. Subjects perceived more possibility for future use of power, less surveillance necessary, more attraction to the powerholder by target, and more private acceptance of the target following positive rather than negative outcomes. Since the means for outcome were more highly differentiated than those for the power bases, it appears that outcome is a stronger determinant of the powerholder-target relationship than power bases.   [More]  Descriptors: College Students, Cooperation, Higher Education, Individual Power

Broadfoot, Patricia (1987). The Significance of Contemporary Contradiction in Educational Assessment Policies in England and Wales. Some of the assumptions underlying educational assessment policies in England and Wales are discussed in terms of contradictions in the aims of those policies. Two key initiatives–the national "bench-mark" testing and records of achievement–provide the focus for illustrating the potentially fundamental change of emphasis in the nature and role of educational assessment that is currently taking place. Via a brief socio-historical analysis of the emerging role of assessment in education, the significance of current contradictions in each educational assessment is examined. The evolution of evaluative language, the trend toward "humanization," and student-centered teaching and evaluation are outlined. The central emerging contradiction involves the simultaneous use of education as an instrument of social control and its potential to act as a force opposing such control by equipping learners with the power to reflect upon and challenge the prevailing power. Comparisons to assessment approaches in France and West Germany are provided; and the Great Education Reform Bill of 1987, which calls for testing of all children at 7 years of age, is critiqued. Far from educational assessment provoking a legitimation crisis, it may be reflecting the emergence of a new form of disciplinary power into which the post-enlightenment abstract language of account, which made psychometric testing and self-surveillance possible, is combined with the pre-modern disciplinary code of direct surveillance of the person as a whole rather than as the occupant of a series of contractuallly-defined roles.   [More]  Descriptors: Educational Assessment, Educational Policy, Educational Trends, Elementary Secondary Education

Nelson, Murry R.; Singleton, H. Wells (1978). Governmental Surveillance of Three Progressive Educators. Governmental interference with academic freedom is illustrated by F.B.I. surveillance of and unauthorized distribution of information about progressive educators John Dewey, George Counts, and Harold Rugg. These three educators attracted the attention of governmental agencies and special interest groups during the 1930s and 1940s because they advocated educational reform and participated in liberal movements such as the ACLU and the NAACP. All three were suspected of communist leanings because they departed from traditional educational approaches and urged students and community members to become actively involved in social reconstruction. In their educational writings and in their courses at Columbia University and the University of Chicago, these educators introduced students to controversial issues such as the depression, labor-management relations, the distribution of wealth, and lifestyles in socialist countries. By 1941, the F.B.I. had gathered nearly 400 pages of information on the three progressive educators in the form of reports by private and governmental agencies, letters, articles, and clippings. The F.B.I. method of accumulating data was to collect any type of readily available information about the men, put the information in a file, and add to the file in a random manner from time to time. This investigative process, apparently without clear objective, made use of much false, partially true, and unsubstantiated information. The conclusion is that the F.B.I. investigations into the activities and writings of Dewey, Rugg, and Counts were capricious, unmethodical, unconfidential, and deleterious to freedom of speech.   [More]  Descriptors: Academic Freedom, Bias, Civil Liberties, Communism
